Our Mission

Whisk’s mission is to empower people to live happier lives through food by creating simpler, better connected and more intelligent ways to discover, organise, shop, cook, enjoy and share food.

Our story

Whisk’s founder and CEO is Nick Holzherr, who first pitched the business idea to Lord Sugar on BBC One’s The Apprentice.

Nick made it to the final round of The Apprentice and then secured private investment to build Whisk. In 2013, Whisk launched a grocery shopping list tool that helps people around the world discover, save and enjoy recipes and food. Our “Create a Shopping List” button appears alongside more than 300,000 online popular recipes, allowing people to quickly create a shopping list from thousands of delicious recipes.

Whisk has rolled out international versions of its app — nine countries and counting! — to help cooks around the world to help make the discovery, shopping and cooking great recipes a whole lot easier.

Whisk is based in Birmingham, England.

Whisk Letovers

Doing our part to reduce food wastage

In November 2014, we launched Whisk Leftovers, a powerful leftover recipe search engine sources more than a quarter of million online recipes. With an aim to help reduce the more than 4.2 million tonnes of food and drink that are being thrown away each year, Whisk Leftovers inspires people to find great recipes made from items in their fridge and cupboards.

Whisk has also broadened its appeal with recipe publishers and brands with launch of WhiskAds, a unique advertising platform that inserts intelligent and persistent ads within the online or printed shopping list. These contextual ads give brands the opportunity to showcase their product when an ingredient is listed in a recipe or when their product could be suitable as an accompaniment.
